VisuoSpatial Foresight for Physical Sequential Fabric Manipulation [article]

Ryan Hoque, Daniel Seita, Ashwin Balakrishna, Aditya Ganapathi, Ajay Kumar Tanwani, Nawid Jamali, Katsu Yamane, Soshi Iba, Ken Goldberg
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We build upon the Visual Foresight framework to learn fabric dynamics that can be efficiently reused to accomplish different sequential fabric manipulation tasks with a single goal-conditioned policy.  ...  Existing fabric manipulation techniques, however, are designed for specific tasks, making it difficult to generalize across different but related tasks.  ...  Physical Experiments We evaluate VisuoSpatial Foresight on a physical da Vinci surgical robot [33] .  ...

VisuoSpatial Foresight for Multi-Step, Multi-Task Fabric Manipulation [article]

2021 arXiv   pre-print
Existing fabric manipulation techniques, however, are designed for specific tasks, making it difficult to generalize across different but related tasks.  ...  We extend the Visual Foresight framework to learn fabric dynamics that can be efficiently reused to accomplish different fabric manipulation tasks with a single goal-conditioned policy.  ...  Furthermore, it is the setting we use in VisuoSpatial Foresight, hence we use it for physical robot experiments.  ...

On theory integration: Toward developing affective components within cognitive architectures

Justin M. Olds, Julian N. Marewski
2015 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
We agree with this and argue that cognitive architectures can provide steady ground for this kind of theory integration and for investigating interactions among underlying cognitive processes.  ...  Once they are engaged, the downstream effects on visual processing (and elsewhere) may be the same for both types of manipulation.  ...  At a first glance, the notion of an architecture anchored on physical connections is clear-cut.  ...

Thanks are due to the Institute of English Studies (to its Director, for whom the dedication) and to the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London, and its Director, Professor Harold  ...  Short, for unstinting support of the Seminar from which most of the essays in this volume originated.  ...  We therefore used sequential random numbers to select pages, lines, and words in each text for further analysis.  ...

Alexander Woods served as my expert flintknapper for the instruction videos that were shown to the study participants.  ...  Thomas Wynn also took the time to read and make suggestions for Chapter 2. Many students devoted their time to assisting with data collection and ensuring that the study ran smoothly:  ...  Perhaps the most obvious physical evidence for complex culture in today's world is technology.  ...
